To begin your search for Big Bear lakefront properties or any other type of Big Bear real estate for sale in the Big Bear Multiple Listing System (MLS), please click on any link(s) above or on the left-hand side of this page.
The Big Bear Real Estate team is prepared to find the property that you are looking for whether it is a luxury lakefront property, a cozy mountain cabin for your family, or an income-producing vacation rental property. So, if you are looking for a great rental property right on Big Bear Lake or just a cabin to enjoy weekends and holidays with the family, we’ve got the right Big Bear real estate options for you. In conjunction with our vacation rental company, we can provide a list of turn-key properties with a history of vacation rental income.
It is important to know upfront whether you are looking for a primary home, second home, or vacation rental/combination property, as different areas are better for each. In general, Big Bear Lake, Moonridge, and Fox Farm tend to rent the most days per year on a vacation basis. Therefore, the further you go from the lake and/or the slopes, the more the prices go down, but so does the rental potential (we can provide rental histories for any area you are interested in). Please let us know if you see anything you like or if you want us to set up a custom Big Bear real estate search for you based on area, price range, number of beds, baths, etc.
The different types of Big Bear real estate are as varied as the Big Bear Valley itself, which ranges from deepwater lakefront areas on the west end of the valley, to much more mountainous terrain in the Moonridge area, and finally a more high-desert-like environment on the far east end of the valley where the dry lake beds (“Erwin Lake” and “Baldwin Lake”) are located; so please feel free to ask us questions about any specific areas and the best places for a full-time home, second home, or vacation rental property. We look forward to helping you find the perfect Big Bear real estate option for you and your family!
We began investing in Real Estate in 2001 with the purchase of our first townhouse in Encino and the lot on which we eventually built our home in Big Bear. In 2001, the real estate market was very similar to the current market. Prices were down from previous years and interest rates were low (although not anywhere near as low as they are today). At the time, our interest rate was 7.75%, but the price was still low; and even after paying taxes and HOA fees, we were only paying a little more than what we had been paying for rent in West Los Angeles. That townhouse in Encino and the lot in Big Bear were the beginning of a string of real estate investments (including several in Texas, Florida, Burbank, and San Diego) that eventually allowed us to quit our 9-5 jobs and move to our “vacation home” in Big Bear. We now live off of the income from our rental properties and are able to spend time helping others find properties that will not only provide years of enjoyment for their families, but hopefully also lead them to the kind of financial freedom that we have found through Real Estate in Big Bear and beyond.
